Women in the Woods on the Tinkham Discovery Trail

When
Saturday, May 5, 2018: 8:30am - 3pm
Event Type
Priority Areas
Middle Fork Snoqualmie Valley
Location
Tinkham Discovery Trail
Description

The Greenway Trust has offered the Women in the Woods series since 2010 to address the gender gap in the trail community and build community for women-identified and non-binary outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you are a trail pro or are out to try trail work for the first time, Women in the Woods events are a blast.

Please note that due to the recent landslide on the Middle Fork Trail that resulted in trail closure, we must relocate this Women in the Woods project. The new location will be at the Tinkham Discovery Trail!

Women in the Woods volunteers will be constructing puncheon, elevated structures that help keep the trail surface dry. These repairs will reopen the trail to equestrians who cannot pass the current washout and provide ecologically sustainable structures to handle all user groups, including hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. The Tinkham Discovery Trail is a short nature trail near the Tinkham Campground, connecting to trail to Mirror Lake and beyond.

Project Difficulty
Moderate to Strenuous
Age Restriction
Ages 14 and up.
What to Bring

For safety, volunteers are required to wear:

  • Long pants (we’ll be working with tools, so no shorts!)
  • Sturdy, close-toed shoes (absolutely no sandals)
  • Gloves

In addition, we recommend that participants bring:

  • Warm layers, especially during the fall, winter, and spring
  • Rain gear
  • Big sack lunch
  • Water for the day (3 liters minimum)
  • Small daypack for lunch, extra layers, etc.
